April 18, 2022

As a result of a court order, effective April 18, 2022, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) January 29, 2021 Order requiring masks on public transportation conveyances and at transportation hubs is no longer in effect. Therefore TranGO is no longer requiring masks on-board the buses or transportation hub. We will however continue to provide masks for any passengers and/or drivers who choose to continue to use them.

Tonasket and Oroville Passengers

We have been working with the City of Tonasket for several years to move the bus stop/transfer location away from the PUD (across the parking lot from Grants).  We have received approval from the Tonasket City Council to move the stop to Western just south of First St (north of the Eagles Club behind North Valley Hospital Extended Care).

The change will take effect on Monday, July 26, 2021. 

The schedule remains the same, the location of the stop is the only change.

If you need to park your car, please make sure to get approval from a nearby business owner.

Health and Safety Alert:

We take the health and safety of the public very seriously.  TranGO drivers sanitize buses daily and also have sanitizing wipes available for each passenger as they board the bus.  Please use the wipes for your hands and for seat belts and the rails you touch while riding the bus. 

If you are sick, please contact your doctor’s office before riding the bus to a clinic or hospital.  We want public transit to be safe for everyone to ride.

With the concern of Coronavirus (COVID-19), TranGO is following the guidelines of the Public Health Department and want to encourage the pubic to do the same:
